Visualizing Animal Behavior

Studio Thesis

1 / 1

In this studio students will observe and gain knowledge of animals and their instinctual and learned behaviors from a biological point of view and abstract the behavior into a mechanism which will record the data visually.

Students will work with a biologist and artist form the Art-Bio collaborative to learn observation, characterization and functions behind behaviors and how to record and document them. We will then simulate the behavior in an abstract object which will also record the behavior via its motion. Students will also have a dual exhibition with the MassArt Bio-Lab in which they will present and share both their mechanisms and the data it rceates.
